Previous daf Gitin 25
GITIN 24 & 25 - have been anonymously dedicated by a very special Marbitz
Torah and student of the Daf from Ramat Beit Shemesh, Israel.
(a) We just explained that Rebbi Yochanan holds 'Ein B'reirah'.
he say with regard to brothers who divided the inheritance that they
received from their father.
(b) What would the Din be if he held 'Yesh B'reirah'?
(c) Why did Rebbi Yochanan find it necessary to teach us 'Ein B'reirah' both
in the case of brothers and in the case of Get? What would we have thought
had he only taught us 'Ein B'reirah' in the case of ...
(d) How will we explain the last distinction if we read 'ki'Techilah'?
- ... Get, but not by brothers?
- ... brothers, but not by Get (if we read 'Mishum de'le'Chumra')?
(a) What did Rav Hoshaya ask Rav Yehudah about the man (whose two wives had
the same name) who asked the Sofer to write a Get in the name of whichever
wife came out of the door first?
(b) How did Rav Yehudah answer him from our Mishnah?
(a) What is the case cited by the Tana in the Beraisa, of the man who
informed his children that he was Shechting the Korban Pesach on behalf of
the first one to arrive in Yerushalayim? How does the Tana conclude?
(b) Rav Yehudah refuted Rav Hoshaya's proof from there (that we hold 'Yesh
B'reirah') with the explanation of Rebbi Yochanan.
What did Rebbi Yochanan
(c) How does Rav Yehudah prove Rebbi Yochanan's interpretation from the very
words of the Tana?
(d) We further substantiate this with another Beraisa.
What does the Tana
tell us about a case that actually happened, when the daughters arrived
first in Yerushalayim?
(a) What problem does Abaye have with the inconsistency of Rav Hoshaya's
She'eilah (regarding whichever wife leaves the house first), Rav Yehudah's
reply (from whichever wife he decides to divorce), and Rav Hoshaya's
subsequent Kashya (from the case of the Korban Pesach)?
(b) Why might there be less reason to say 'Yesh Bereirah' in a case of
'Toleh be'Da'as Atzmo' than Toleh be'Da'as Acheirim'?
(c) On what grounds does Rava reject Abaye's Kashya?
(a) Rav Mesharshaya asks on Rava from Rebbi Yehudah in the Beraisa. Rebbi
Meir permits drinking wine that one purchased from Kutim (on Erev Shabbos
and he was unable to separate the Ma'asros before Shabbos arrived).
does he say about Ma'asering verbally (one hundred Lugin) with regard to ...
(b) Why is it necessary for the purchaser to separate Terumah, seeing as
Amei ha'Aretz are not suspect on Terumah?
- ... Terumah?
- ... Ma'aser Rishon?
- ... Ma'aser Sheini?
(c) Will the same apply nowadays?
(a) When does Rebbi Meir permit drinking the wine?
Answers to questions
(b) What do Rebbi Yehudah, Rebbi Yossi and Rebbi Shimon say there?
(c) How does Rav Mesharshaya explain Rebbi Yehudah?
(a) Rebbi Yehudah states in a Mishnah later that if someone says to his wife
'Zeh Gitech Me'achshav Im Meisi me'Choli Zeh', she has the status of a
married woman during the interim period, even if he does die from the
What are the ramifications of Rebbi Yehudah's ruling ...
(b) How can we extrapolate from the fact that Rebbi Yehudah nevertheless
validates the Get should he die from the illness, that he holds 'Yesh
B'reirah' by Toleh be'Da'as Acheirim?
- ... assuming the husband is a Kohen?
- ... even if he is not?
(c) Why is it that, if not for B'reirah, the Get would be invalid because of
'Ein Get le'Achar Misah'? How does this differ from other conditions that
need to be fulfilled after the Get takes place, and when they are, the Get
is valid retroactively, even without B'reirah?
(a) In another Beraisa, in a case where a man says to a woman 'Hareini
Bo'alech al-Menas she'Yirtzeh Aba', the Tana Kama says that she is betrothed
even if the woman's father did not consent to the betrothal.
Why is that?
(b) Rebbi Shimon (who concurs with the opinion of Rebbi Yehudah in the
Beraisa of 'ha'Lokei'ach Yayin mi'Bein ha'Kutim') disagrees.
Rebbi Shimon ben Yehudah quote Rebbi Shimon as saying?
(c) How do we extrapolate from here that Rebbi Shimon holds 'Yesh B'reirah'?
(a) What does Rav Mesharshaya now extrapolate from this Beraisa in
conjunction with that of 'ha'Lokei'ach Yayin', with regard to the opinion of
Rebbi Shimon? Why is this a Kashya on Rava?
Answers to questions
(b) Rava replies that both Rebbi Yehudah and Rebbi Shimon hold 'Yesh
In that case, on what grounds do they forbid the person who
purchased wine from a Kuti to drink it before having actually separated it?
(c) The Tana'im who argue with Rebbi Meir specifically gave this reason in
What did Rebbi Meir reply?
